Importing Mocha Shape data appears corrupt in AE
on Nov 19, 2012 at 7:46:19 pm

I trying to learn Mocha for track motion and now that I've got some layers set up in Mocha along with tracking keyframes I'd like to import them into AE CS6.

Problem is when I paste the mocha shapes into AE, the data seems totally corrupted. The mask data that has been pasted shows to have animation keys in AE, but when I scrub through the timeline, all the masks explode and appear nothing like the shape layers that I've set up in Mocha. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Ensure that you've got the latest CS6 version and that you've selected the correct layer(s) to export when in mocha. Also, how are you pasting shape data in AE -
a) paste mocha mask (from AE's Edit Menu)
b) mocha shape (CTRL+V)

Thanks for the response.

I've been pasting through the menu: Edit/PasteMochaShapes

Do I need to do something in Mocha to set all the keys properly before copying shape data? For each shape in Mocha, I've tracked individually ie. they are not linked to a tracking layer. Then I've adjusted the shape keys by hand where needed. Could this be causing problems?

Hi Sandra, there is no "Edit/PasteMochaShapes" on the AE Edit menu. The Edit Menu only provides for Paste mocha mask.

Anyways, the latest version of AE, 11.0.2.12 fixed a bug pertaining to mocha shape keyframes not correctly translated when pasted in AE. Please ensure that you have the latest AE version.
